Like I said, lets hook the iron sheets up to electricity and remagnetize them, maybe something will happen. After all, anyone that knows anything
about Edward Leedskalnin knows that he was able to lift 30 ton stones all by himself with horse shoe magnets; and his stones weren't made of iron.
Harte, I guess your whole "theory" fails.
Quoting Harte from above:
"It's not "theory." It is scientific fact that I teach every day.
Also, the Coral Castle was built using magnetism, alright. The electromagnetism that is utilized in an electric winch, as anyone that looks at the
photographic evidence can easily see.
I don't care that you teach kindergarten class every day Harte.
You need to wake up and read about Edward Leedskalnin and watch TV shows that describe what he did. Edward had made a fantastic discovery that seems
to evade all of the rest of us. I suspect that same discovery could be rediscovered if they electrofied the sheets of iron between the stones in
A truck driver pulled up along side of one of the 20+ ton stones that Ed had. The truck driver stated there was nothing around to lift it. He stated
he was thirsty and asked if he could get a drink, Ed told him to go ahead and get himself a drink of water. He came back only a few minutes later at
the most, and the stone was already loaded onto the back of the semi trailer with Ed the 90 pound man standing there alone, and there was no equipment
in sight. (show referred to was "In Search of")
IF you looked at the winch, and the chains, and the pole tripod that Ed had, you could easily see that none of those could have possibly been capable
of lifting the 20+ ton stones; let alone any of the smaller 5+ ton stones, or the massive 30 ton stones.
So.... lets see your supposed photographic evidence of some equipment that Ed had that was capable of MECHANICALLY lifting the 30 ton stone like you
IF you had watched TV and gotten real evidence you would have seen that even a huge modern 600+ horse power crane was not capable of lifting the
stone, it could barely lift one end and dragged it with much difficulty; and that's with a huge modern 600+ horse power crane. Ed didn't have even
one horse power running through his 90 pound frame.
So... that shot your whole HARTE BS story full of holes.
I pity your students, having to listen to your supposed scientific fact everday like you state above; yet you can't prove what you state.
Where is your proof that Edward Leedskalnin had equipment "mechanically strong enough" to lift 30 ton stones onto a tractor trailer bed without
crushing Eds equipment before the stone got off the ground? Show us the photographic evidence of chains and tripod poles strong enough to lift 30 ton
stones 5-6 feet in the air and then swing them over 10 feet or so onto the back of the trailer bed of a semi in a matter of minutes.
The Internet is your domain for finding those pictures. Where are they? Oh... that's right, they don't exist.
